Moving to Seattle is quickly moving from a potentiality to a certainty, we booked our moving company for the end of May! (My partner will head out immediately while I stick around here with the kids until the beginning of July) That said, I'd love to get some recommendations from other moms on where to live. None of my friends who are in Seattle are parents yet, so what they would recommend wouldn't necessarily apply to me. We have a 7 year old, a 12 year old, and one on the way though, so quite a spread of needs. We homeschool, so school district isn't an issue for us, though being within an easy commute to the Homeschool Resource Center would be nice.
What I'm looking for:
*Within 1/2 hour drive/25 miles of Sumner, WA, where my partner has a job lined up.
*Affordable- absolute max of $1050 for a 2 bedroom, ideally closer to $800 or $900
*Close to public transit- we only have one car.
*City proper (not suburbs)
Close to library
Close to park, particularly one with programs for elementary/middle school
Close to museums and other educational opportunities
Access to good, inexpensive grocery store with great produce
High walk score in general
Thanks so much!
